Dry, dark, warm, complex, responsive, and breathy all describe this ride. This cymbal is very versatile with many applications. As a ride it has a dry stick attack with a mellow warm roar underneath. As a crash it quickly fills the space and then gets out of the way. The unlathed surface, large hammer strokes, and thin weight make this a very expressive cymbal. This is a prototype of the B22EDTR catalog cymbal.
